Sri Lanka rip through Pakistan batsmen in opener to Colombo TestJune 25, 2015
Sri Lanka left Pakistan’s batsmen gutted, and it’s only the first day here at the 2nd Test in Colombo. Pakistan were bowled out for just 138 in the first innings; no batsmen scored higher than the 42 by opener Mohammad Hafeez. The main culprit was Sri Lankan offspinner Tharindu Kaushal, who took 5/42 from 10.5 overs; Dhammika Prasad picked up 3/43 from 13 overs. In reply, the hosts are 70/1 at close of play, with Kaushal Silva on 21 and Kumar Sangakkara on 18; Dimuth Karunaratne dismissed for 28. Sri Lanka now trail by 68 runs with 9 wickets remaining.
